5:13 am
along the eastern shore just very light right now. we will begin to pick up more showers as we go throughout the day but look at the cloud across the area. we do have that eastern flow in here. also we have showers off toward the west and all this is courtesy of the remnants of isaac. this will push in as well and then we have this stationary boundary just to the south of us. so with that, that's going to keep us on the unsettled side. but also that tropical moisture moving in here from isaac. so we are very humid this morning and this humidity is going to linger as we head through most of the week. temperatures this morning, with all that cloud cover, yes, we are on the warm side or the mild side. temperatures in the 70s everywhere. 7 6 degrees if chesapeake beach. westminster at 73. and we are at 73 in teachesville and edge did -- stevensville and edgewood. we are talk about the humidity and we are dealing with another storm tropical storm leslie and we can see it to the norm and
